WHS upgrade to Windows 10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • There are now so many things I can't do on my WHS and lack of support that I've decided to update the OS and was thinking of a "server" running Windows 10.  I'm worried about the amount of data I have though on the spread of 4 hard drives in the existing set up and seek advice on what is and is not possible when doing an install of Win10

    Thanks to anyone out there with experience of this.

  • Hi,

    you did not say, which version of WHS you are talking about. Windows Home Server is primarily a Backup appliance for client PCs. Additionally it offers sharing of files and media and Remote Access.

    Only file and media sharing is possibe with Windows 10 in a similar manner, a backup facility for other clients does not exist, nor does Remote Access in such an easy way. Also keep in mind, that you would need a full version of Windows 10 (which costs money) or install a unused license of Windows 7 or 8.1 first, activate it and update this.

    Best greetings from Germany
